Välkommen till Grand Comics Database!

Vi är en icke-kommersiell, internetbaserad organisation med internatioella frivilliga som hjälper till att bygga en databas som täcker alla tryckta serier i hela världen. Vi är glada att du har hittat oss! Prova gärna att söka i databasen eller undersök menyn till höger för att se hur du kan bidra till projektet.

Vår sökmotor har vissa begränsningar, då den är känslig för stavning. Till exempel kommer "Spiderman" och "Spider-Man" att ge olika sökresultat. Även "Musse & Långben" och "Musse och Långben" kommer att ge olika resultat. Vi vill gärna skapa en bättre sökmotor, så har du möjlighet att uppgradera den, hör av dig.
Vi närmar oss 25 000 omslag! Det är ca 44 procent av alla svenska tidningar. Blir det du som får äran av att ladda upp det 25-tusende omslaget?

GCD Comics Timeline

Matt Baker (10 December 1921 – 11 August 1959, USA) was a comic book artist in the 1940s and 1950s. He was the first African-American artist in the nascent USA comic-book industry, when he joined the Jerry Iger Studio in the mid-1940s.

His best-known work was on ‘Phantom Lady’ for Fox Features. The costumed crime-fighter had been created at the Iger Studio in 1941 for Quality Comics; her feature moved to Fox in 1947. Baker drew her stories from 1947 to 1949, in her own title and in “All-Top Comics”. They were most likely written by Ruth Roche. He also drew “Rulah, Jungle Goddess” for Fox.

Baker created the military humor feature ‘Canteen Kate’ at St. John’s in 1951 and drew all of her stories, in “Fightin’ Marines” and her own short-lived series. He also drew for their romance titles.

In the late 1950s he published at Atlas Comics (as Marvel Comics was known then), primarily romance and western stories. He died unexpectedly in 1959, before his 38th birthday.

Baker was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2009.

E.C. Segar (Elzie Crisler Segar, 8 December 1894 – 13 October 1938, USA) is widely regarded as having been one of the most influential and talented cartoonists of all time, among the first to combine humor with long-running adventures.

Around age 20, he moved to Chicago and met Richard F. Outcault (creator of “The Yellow Kid”), who introduced him to the Chicago Herald. On 12 March 1916, the Herald published his first strip, “Charlie Chaplin’s Comedy Capers”. He published in Chicago through 1919, and then moved to New York City.

There, Segar went to work for King Features Syndicate. His most famous strip, “Thimble Theatre”, began in the New York Journal on 19 December 1919. Its lead characters were Olive Oyl, Castor Oyl, and Ham Gravy.

Nine years into the “Thimble Theatre” strip, he introduced a sailor named Popeye in the 17 January 1929 installment. Popeye soon took over the storyline and became the main character, and is now a global pop-culture icon.

In 1971, the National Cartoonists Society created the Elzie Segar Award for outstanding contributions to the profession, which was awarded by NCS and then by King Features until 1999.

Segar died of leukemia at age 43.

Lucky Luke is a humorous comics series created by Belgian cartoonist Morris in 1946. Various writers scripted the series starting in 1955, beginning with French writer René Goscinny. French artist Achdé has continued the series as artist since Morris's death in 2001.

The series takes place in the American Old West and features the titular Lucky Luke, a cowboy known as the "man who shoots faster than his shadow", accompanied by his horse Jolly Jumper and in many stories a dog named Rantanplan.

The series has been adapted to various other media, such as animated films and television series, live-action films, video games, toys, and board games. About half of the series' adventures have been translated into English. Lucky Luke comics have been translated into 23 languages, including many European languages, some African and Asian languages.
